(Have we seen a sub yet? I don't recall).
Yeah, Tron piloted a sub to help Cutler and Beck escape from Tesler's battleyacht thing in The Renegade, pt. 2.
Anyone else noticed how VIOLENT the show is getting(Wich is awesome) ? The poor black guard cut in half and screaming desesperately HELP ME! HELP ME! while he is derezzing is something, but the way they wanted to execute the programs at the end? Stretching them until they broke in pieces? That was a method of execution in the medieval times! This series is getting away with things not even Legacy could.
The derezzing Black Guard in Tesler's nightmare was an interesting touch, projecting Tesler's own cruelty onto the renegade, but I was unimpressed by the execution scene; it didn't feel very
to me, as opposed to, something like "progressive decompilation", which would require some imagination from us, the viewers, to conceive of how horrible that would be for a program. But I guess it's well-established that Tesler is a sadist and a sociopath (or the programmatic equivalent).
On the opposite side, even though the show is ramping up in terms of darkness and violence, the renegade never derezzes anybody? C'mon - it's beginning to be difficult to suspend my disbelief. Even the disintegrated-by-lightcycles execution scene would have rung a bit more true if Beck had derezzed one or two of the light cycle riders while freeing Zed, Mara, and Hopper.
I find myself kind of hoping it's Beck that sends Tron around the bend into Rinzler-ville.
